Mouni Roy’s alleged beau Mohit Raina to make his Bollywood debut with 'Uri'


The year is filled with new entrants and big Bollywood debuts. Here comes another one! Television sensation Mouni Roy’s alleged boyfriend and a popular face, Mohit Raina of Devon Ke Dev – Mahadev fame, is the next to join the debut train. He will be seen as an Indian Army Officer in the film Uri.

Talking about his love for the patriotic genre he says, "It was my dream to join the Indian Army. Since that never got fulfilled, I make up for it by playing a soldier whenever I get a chance. Also, I have always taken up challenging roles on television. So, though I love commercial films, I wanted something different for my film debut as well. 'Uri' has actors like Vicky Kaushal and Paresh Rawal, and it will be a learning experience working with them. Whether it is mythology, history or any other genre, the role has to be backed by strong content.”

He added, "Nation always comes first, and I feel that it is a great opportunity to be part of a film that portrays the incident." He rose to the fame with the mythological show and instantly became a household name. He was last seen in the television show Sarfarosh: Saragarhi 1897. The show was based on the battles of Saragarhi in which 21 valiant soldiers fought more than 10,000 Afghan intruders.

Producer Ronnie Screwvala announced the film on Indian Army’s surgical strike in Pakistan occupied Kashmir that took place after September 2016 attacks in Uri. Earlier this year, the film has gone on floors. The film stars Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal and Kriti Kulhari in lead roles.
